Remember the 50's
A Tribute to
The "Marvelous" Marvelettes
& The Drifters
Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 7 PM
We conclude our 12th season with Linwood Peel's tribute to The "Marvelous" Marvelettes and Drifters, two of the most influential artists in the early days of soul. The Drifters are truly unique in today's world of coming and going popular music groups. From their very first release on Atlantic records, "There goes My Baby", they were bound for stardom with a 2 million seller under their belts in their first try. Over the next 10 years there were 29 additional chart records, accounting for nearly 20 million sales of singles and over 8 million albums in the US alone. In fact, only the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Bee Gees have sold more records over a more sustained period of time. Although The Marvelettes have not been inducted into The Hall of Fame yet, they are the sixth most successful all female recording act. They are one of only 21 acts in the last 25 years whose first record sold over 1 million and went number 1, of which only 2 of those acts were female ensembles. Together, they will transport your audience with hits like "Under the Boardwalk" "On Broadway" and "Please, Mr. Postman", among others. This will truly be "This Magic Moment." So please, "Save the Last Dance For Me!"
